Very nice exercise to walk up and see the city of Bergen from the top. The walk was nice and pleasant, due to sunny and warm weather. Lots of people on top. It was has a nice restaurant in top where you can sit down and have a beer.

The funicular takes you to the top of a mountain overlooking all of Bergen with just beautiful views. There are a few different food choices at the top with outdoor seating. There is also a large number of hiking trails that will take you all across the tops of the mountains in all directions and at a variety of difficulty... More

Superb view from summit area. Funicular fun and efficient. Cafe was expensive and a bit slow, but food good.

Get there early, or prebook with an agency / group; otherwise take a book to read in the queue. Well worth the time and expense - magnificent views from the top - all the town and many miles of surroundings laid out at your feet. Plus usual shops, cafe Drawbacks? cloud can block the view completely. Also there are few... More

Lovely view of the harbor. Fun troll at the playground for photos. Gifts and snacks available at the top. One can walk up or down also - about 4 kilometers on a gentle incline. Try riding one way and walking the other. I ran up it one morning - great! Tickets can be bought at the station or at tourist... More

First I went to Flöyen around 11.00 am and the line was ridiculous, I left and came back later that same afternoon, no line. Ride was smooth and view over Bergen amazing. On top there is a giftshop and restaurant. I walked down, took me a good 25-30 min including photostops. Can really recommend it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip up Mount Floyen on the Floibanen. The views from the top are incredible. A must-see attraction while in Bergen. We let one car go and waited for the next so that we were sitting right at the front on the way back down - great fun!

We went up early in the day and it was hard to leave. It is so beautiful there. Just sit and admire the view. Wonderful.
